Forest Mana loves coffee, but having too much sometimes brings out the jitters. We also love implementing mushroom extract powders into our daily food and beverage intake. The strong taste of coffee is ideal for effective amounts of our mushroom extracts on the go! Adding our mushroom extracts to our daily coffee rituals makes the experience as smooth as crema, mellowing out the side effects - here's how!
Espresso with Lion's Mane!
The Italian staple - a neat balance of strength, pure coffee aroma and energy! Espresso is a coffee-brewing method of Italian origin, in which a small amount of nearly boiling water is forced under 9–10 bars of pressure through finely-ground coffee beans. Espresso coffee can be made with a wide variety of coffee beans and roast degrees. It's the coffee lovers favourite!
One of our founders adds 2 grams of Lion's Mane mushroom extract powder per a double shot portion. Mix well while crema is still fresh and the espresso is hot! To ensure higher temperatures for ideal solubility and taste, warm up the espresso machine and cup before use, so that the temperature is not transferred into the environment too fast during the espresso extraction process. We drink espresso with small snacks, when saving time and generally the team agrees that it is a morning/noon treat.
Cappuccino and Latte re-imagined with Turkey Tail
These are some of the most popular milky coffee treats that are available all around! A cappuccino and a latte coffee are both espresso-based coffee drinks that originated in Italy.
Dark, rich espresso lies in wait under a smoothed and stretched layer of thick foam, making it an ideal beverage for experimentation with flavours, add-ons and healthy tricks! Our healthy trick? Turkey Tail Mushroom extract powder! One of founders adds 10 grams of Turkey Tail mushroom extract powder or our Spectrum 7 mushroom extract blend to a large latte or cappuccino with 2-3 shots of espresso... It's healthy and delicious!
Variations of these drinks include the use of cream instead of milk, using non-dairy milk varieties, and flavouring with cinnamon or chocolate powder... and now Turkey Tail mushroom extract powder!
Flat White and Chaga
A flat white is a coffee drink consisting of espresso with microfoam (steamed milk with small, fine bubbles and a glossy or velvety consistency). The coffee force is strong in this one - it is often described as a more concentrated and rich drink when compared to a cappuccino or latte.
This is why it can handle the naturally earthy pallette brought to us by Chaga Mushroom Extract Powder by Forest Mana! Add 2 grams of Chaga mushroom extract powder to your favourite cup of Flat White coffee and you'll discover a rich aftertaste followed by the feel-good health kick!
Coffee and mushroom extracts are the next big thing!
If you're a coffee enthusiast, experimenting with various taste palette's and types of coffee preparation is part of the life-long experience. This is why we are excited to introduce the next big thing for all the health nuts in our community - coffee enriched with mushroom extract powders! Stay healthy, Your Forest Mana team
